Mamma, mamma ?hasn’t / had them? take one
Ooh yeah
Whoa ooh yeah

Everything’s gonna be alright this mornin’
Have mercy

Wow wowwa wowwa... hey, yeah
Hey
When I was a young boy
Round about the age of five, I think
?I had a certain kinda problem? / or ? I somethin’ in my pocket?
?People along the vocal line? / ?To keep my momma hope alive?
Now I’m a man, made 21
You know baby, we’ll have a whole lots of fun
Cause I’m a man, ?spendin’?
Hey child, yeah boy
Here I am…

DOODOODOO DOODY...[scatting]

Hey
All you pretty women
Stand in line
I’ll make love to you
All this time
I’m not sure
We’ll never miss
The way I make love
?Miss Harris?

Cause I’m a man
I swear I’m the only
A child, now, yeah Lord

Cause I’m a man child, ya hear me
Cause I’m a man, hear me say
I said I’m a man ah hey hey
I said I’m a man hey baby

Yeah
I’m goin’ down South
To Kansas too
I’m going to bring back my second cousin
Little John, we call him Blue
Cause I’m a man
What fun we had
Chasin’ rabbits
In the sand

HEY HEY HEY...who hoo
HEY!

    General CommentA funky reworking of Muddy Waters' "Mannish Boy" and Bo Diddley's "I'm a Man". I love it when Jimi is mimicking the guitar on his awesome solos. This is electric blues at its best, although the lyrics dont make much sense.

    General CommentI thought the lyric was I’ll make love to you....always time. Instead of all this time.
